My Favorite Beauty DIY

My Favorite Beauty DIY by fra3 

I've already explained how to create an ombre-degradé manicure and this time I'm dedicating this post o a similar effect, "Tie Dye"!

 It was the pattern beloved by hippies in the 70s and now it has become very popular!
The skill is very close to the one of the marble art but you don't need water or glasses just a toothpick ;)
You'll have to draw the typical Tie Dye pattern on the nail polish already applied on the nail, to do this apply first the golden shade, than the medium blue and then the darkest blue as in the set above; you must be quite fast (don't let the laquer dry!) and in the point where 2 different shades touch go zigzag with you toothpick in order to blend them just a bit.
It's easier to do than to explain! You only need to try! :)

If you prefer something easier to use and with a garanteed result, YSL has created
 four "Tie Dye" top coats!

YSL La Laque Couture Tie & Die Top Coat Collection

YSL's La Laque Couture Tie & Dye Top Coat Collection is the first-ever nail polish that comes with three tones in one bottle! The collection of four new nail polishes features a fun twist, each polish is composed of 3 separate layers, for 3 different finishes in one application!The sparkle, solid and clear gloss finishes sit in three layers in the bottle; you can either slide out the brush smoothly for a dip-dyed gradient effect, or you can shake up the mixture to create another look. For now the limited edition collection comes in just four colors : Cool (watermelon), Pop (pink), Hip (lilac) and Ice (blue).It's already a must and it's sold out at the official Ysl Make Up website ;)
